INTERNET RESOURCES –Internet resources can supplement or enhance your research. Always be cautious of information found on the Web since the quality of sources varies tremendously on the Internet. It is always a good idea to check the information against another source. As with all information resources, whether in print or on the Internet, evaluate the quality based on the following criteria:






Is it free from mistakes and errors?

What are the qualifications of the author?

Is there any strong bias?

Is the information up-to-date?

To what extent is the topic explored?
